“Ministry of Health is still monitoring all the data and there is a possibility that we cannot completely lift Movement Control Order ( MCO),” said Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah
He added there are six criteria that must be fulfilled before the movement control order (MCO) can officially end.
- Ensuring border control by screening and placing Malaysians who are returning from abroad under quarantine.
- MCO- By staying at home, the chances of being infected are low.
- Health systems, we should reduce the time taken for polymerase chain reaction (PCR) screenings.
- Enforcing laws to protect those who are at high risk such as the disabled, chemotherapy patients and those with serious diseases.
- Malaysians to incorporate the new normal in their daily lives – social distancing, washing their hands and avoiding gatherings.
- Health ministry must be able to work together with the community to enforce preventative measures in the community concerned.
“This is the framework that we have and it needs to be practised by every ministry to see how we can have a soft landing exit strategy, ” he said.
At the same time, Dr Noor Hisham said there were a total of 95 Malaysians who had returned from abroad and tested positive for Covid-19.
“These Malaysians were found to be positive for Covid-19 and were isolated in quarantine centres for observation and treatment, ” he added.
I begin to think about the end of the crisis, and what the world will look like afterward.
